Song Lullaby: Whistle Down The Wind

Whistle down the wind
Let your voices carry
Drown out all the rain
Light a patch of darkness

Treacherous and scary
Howl at the stars
Whisper when you're sleepy
I'll be there you hold you

I'll be there to stop
The chills and all the weeping
Make it clear and strong
So the whole night long

Every signal that you send
Until the very end
I will not abandon you

my precious friend

So try and stand the tide
Then you'll raise a banner
Send a flare up in the sky
Try to burn a torch

And try to build a bonfire
Every signal that you send
Until the very end

I'm there

So whistle down the wind
For I have always been
Right there ....

--- Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
--- From the Musical "Whistle Down The Wind"

Whistle Down the Wind is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the 1961 film Whistle Down the Wind. The lyrics are by Jim Steinman, known for his work with Meat Loaf, Bonnie Tyler and others. Based on the novel of the same name by Mary Hayley Bell, the setting was moved from Lancashire to small town Louisiana in 1959. It tells the story of three children - 16 year old Swallow, sister Bluejay (known as Brat), and younger brother Robin (known as Poor Baby) - as they approach their first Christmas since the death of their mother. Discovering an escaped criminal hiding in their barn, they become convinced that he is Jesus, and agree to keep his location secret. The plot contrasts the innocence of the children with the fervour of the town's residents to inflict punishment on the supposed evil in their midst. (http://www.wikipedia.com/)
